Antarctica: Ice and Sky


Drilling down into the Antarctic ice fields in the 1950s, Claude Lorius brought about a sweeping change in our vision of the world when he discovered the effects of climate change. At 82, he returns there one last time, looking back on six decades of research and adventure to tell a much larger story: the history of the Earth’s climate, and the fraught future that awaits us. Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins) captures his journey in all its grandeur, bringing both the frozen majesty of the South Pole and the human tenacity of Lorius himself to the big screen.


Directed by Luc Jacquet and produced by Richard Grandpierre and Frédéric Doniguian. Special guests Dr. Paul Andrew MayewskiGavin A. SchmidtAri Daniel.
